The strands are long and soft material. Soft stands up to washing. Cats love the softness. It's very soft and snuggly.
The blanket is very lightweight, but so warm. It’s soft like a sweatshirt. It's also breathable.
Buying stuff on amazon has become such a crapshoot. It fits my queen bed like any blanket made for a queen size bed should.
The inside material is like the cheap fleece hoodie lining from like the off brand walmart hoodies. The other side feels like sand paper. Think minky plush feel. It is scratchy and not at all comfortable on the top side.
Throws are just too short to cover you toes to shoulders. It is very small when it folds up. Not breathable either.
